The hardest part of my job was the people. It is just like going to high school with the unnecessary amount of drama that there is on a daily basis. other than that, the clients are great.

Residential Assistant (Former Employee) - Columbia, TN
I was excited about landing this job. It pays well and I care about the kids. However, they do not train you and the people that work there are very gossipy, mean and catty. Its like being thrown back into cliques in highschool. It’s insanely stressful. They give you paid training but do not prepare you for the reality of the job or daily tasks. Most people don’t know what they are doing and it creates a sense of chaos. It became overrun with Covid-19 They can’t keep good, caring, loving people at this job because the bad people have the upper hand. I loved the students but dreading going to work because of my coworkers were highly unprofessional and cruel.
Pros
It pays well, flexible schedule, interacting with the students
Cons
Stressful, chaotic, unprofessional, safety hazard

Residential Assistant Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) - Columbia, TN
KDS is a great place to work if you enjoy a middle school atmosphere. No matter what shift you work, you will have to deal with drama. Why, you might wonder. The answer? Administration. Primarily, the education administration. They like to choose one employee to bully everyone else so they do not actually have to do their job. It doesn't matter if that employee smokes on campus or wrecks the bus, as long as she snitches on enough people. Furthermore, educational administration spreads gossip about all the employees, including making private information public. Residential administration does not treat residential assistants with respect and makes it impossible to do your job! According to them, it's healthy for kids to be on technology fourteen hours a day and gorge themselves with pizza :) Employees who have been there for years are not respected and pushed under the rug. You'll be sucked up to so that you'll work extra hours but talked badly about behind your back. It's the most unprofessional environment imaginable. Absolutely do not accept a job here.
Pros
the kids
Cons
everything else

Housekeeper/Janitorial (Current Employee) - Columbia, TN
This is a 501C non-profit organization so the pay is very low and the company strives for longevity versus upfront pay which is a dangerous game to play when people expect to be paid fairly with a good starting pay.
Pros
Supportive staff, donated food to staff from parents, parties, Pto
Cons
Pay, holidays are worked, summers are not off as this is a boarding school
